Residents of the Rehovot Haholandit [Dutch Rehovot] neighborhood in the city of Rehovot have been sending hate mail to five people with mental disorders who wished to live in that neighborhood. Among other things, the letters say that “disgusting, dirty, stinking perverts have been walking around our neighborhood.” The letters are part of a lengthy campaign put in place to chase the people with mental disorders out of the neighborhood.

MK Faina Kirshenbaum (Yisrael Beitenu) received hatemail which stated that “A committee of inquiry should be established for all the whores, all the drunks, all the thieves, and all the hooligans. As they say, a good Russian is a dead Russian.” According to Kirshenbaum “expressions of violence, incitement, and racism should be outside of the public discourse. I find such expressions of violence most serious and have brought the matter to the attention of the Knesset Security Officer.”
